This Agreement sets forth the terms and conditions of Your use of Go Daddy's Domain Name Registration and represents the entire agreement between You and Go Daddy. By participating in this transaction, You acknowledge that You have read, understand and agree to be bound by all the terms and conditions of this Agreement, including our dispute policy and the ICANN Transfer Dispute Resolution Policy along with any new, different or additional terms, conditions or policies, including the Universal Terms of Service which Go Daddy may establish from time to time. Such Agreements may be found here.

In addition to transactions entered into by You on Your behalf, You also agree to be bound by the terms of this agreement for transactions entered into on Your behalf by anyone acting as Your Agent, and transactions entered into by anyone who uses the account You've established with Go Daddy, whether or not the transactions were in Your behalf. You acknowledge that Go Daddy's acceptance of any application made by You for services provided by Go Daddy will take place at the Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers ("ICANN") accredited registrar's offices located in Scottsdale, Arizona, USA.

You acknowledge that Go Daddy is a registrar bound by an agreement between Go Daddy and ICANN. You agree that Go Daddy may modify this agreement in order to comply with applicable law and the terms and conditions set forth by the ICANN and/or the Registry Administrator chosen by ICANN, as well as any registration rules or policies that may be published from time to time by Go Daddy .


1. fees

In consideration for the services and products ("service") purchased by You and provided to You by Go Daddy , You agree to pay Go Daddy at the time service is provided. Payment is to be made by You by providing either a valid credit card, an online check, or using " Good As Gold " to establish a cash reserve for charge by Go Daddy (collectively, the "Payment Method"). Personal checks and money orders may only be used only to fund "Good As Gold" (GAG) accounts, must be for payments of $100 or more, and issued in U.S. dollars for the full amount required at that time. Personal checks under $1,000 are subject to the same processing fees as wire transfers. All personal checks will be delayed fourteen (14) days until the money is credited, which may delay Your usage of the product or service, and any check that bounces will result in a $25 bounced check fee. If You purchase an automatically renewing service or product by personal check, it is Your responsibility to make payment arrangements for each renewal payment. You understand that ICANN requires Go Daddy to collect a small registration fee when you purchase your domain name registration. You agree to pay such fees. Payments are non-refundable. If for any reason Go Daddy is unable to charge Your Payment Method for the full amount owed Go Daddy for the service provided, or if Go Daddy is charged a penalty for any fee it previously charged to your Payment Method, You agree that Go Daddy may pursue all available remedies in order to obtain payment. You agree that among the remedies Go Daddy may pursue in order to effect payment, shall include but will not be limited to, immediate cancellation without notice to You of any domain names registered or renewed on Your behalf. Go Daddy reserves the right to charge a reasonable service fee for administrative tasks outside the scope of its regular services. These include, but are not limited to, customer service issues that cannot be handled over email but require personal service, and disputes that require legal services. These charges will be billed to the Payment Method we have on file for You. You may change your Payment Method at any time by logging into Your Account Manager.

Domain Name Renewals

When You register a domain name, You have the option to elect that the domain name be automatically renewed upon reaching the expiration date. If You elect the automatic renewal option, Go Daddy will automatically renew, for a period equivalent to the length of your original registration, any domain name that is up for renewal and will take payment from the Payment Method You have on file with Go Daddy , at Go Daddy 's then current rates. Thus, if you have chosen to register your domain name for one year, Go Daddy will automatically renew it for one year. If you have chosen to register your domain name for two years, Go Daddy will automatically renew it for two years, and so on. Domain name renewals will be non refundable. If for any reason Go Daddy is not able to take the payment from the Payment Method You have on file, and You fail to respond to our notices, Your domain name registration will expire. It is Your responsibility to keep Your Payment Method information current, which includes the expiration date if you are using a credit card. If You do not elect that the domain name be automatically renewed, You have the responsibility of logging into Your account manager for that domain name and manually implementing the renewal by the expiration date (should You in fact want the domain name to be renewed). In this case, if You fail to manually implement the renewal in a timely fashion the domain name will be cancelled and You will no longer have use of that name. You agree that Go Daddy will not be responsible for cancelled domain names that You fail to renew, either automatically or manually. In any case, if You fail to renew Your domain name in a timely fashion, additional charges may apply. If You signed up for domain masking, domain forwarding, or any other similar service, with Your domain registration, these services may be automatically renewed when Your domain registration is up for renewal, and You may incur an additional renewal fee unless You cancel in advance.

If you fail to renew your domain name, you agree that Go Daddy may, at its sole discretion, renew your expired domain name on your behalf. If Go Daddy decides to renew your expired domain name on your behalf you will have a Renewal Grace Period during which you may reimburse Go Daddy for the renewal and keep your domain name. The Renewal Grace Period is currently 12 days but subject to change under the terms of Section 2 of this Agreement. If you do not reimburse Go Daddy for the renewal during the Renewal Grace Period your domain name will be placed on Hold and flagged for deletion after which you will have a 30 day redemption period during which you may pay Go Daddy a Redemption fee and redeem your domain name. The Redemption fee is currently $80 USD and is subject to change under the terms of Section 2 of this agreement. If you do not redeem your domain name prior to the end of the 30 day redemption period Go Daddy may, at its sole discretion, delete your domain name or transfer it to another registrant on your behalf.

If your domain is deleted, the Registry also provides a 30 day Redemption Grace Period during which you may pay Go Daddy a redemption fee and redeem your domain name. The redemption fee is currently $80 USD and is subject to change under the terms of Section 2 of this agreement. If you do not redeem your domain name prior to the end of the Registry’s Redemption Grace Period the Registry will release your name and it will become available for registration on a first-come-first-served basis.

A. Good as Gold Prepaid Services
  • Service Details.

    By using Go Daddy ’s Prepaid Services, You can transfer funds to Go Daddy in advance and use the balance of Your Prepaid Services Account ("Account") as You please. You can use Your Account to purchase any of the Software or Services of Go Daddy . As consideration for the Services purchased by You and provided to You by Go Daddy , You agree to pay Go Daddy in advance for the Services to be provided. Payment is to be made by You providing either a valid credit card, wire transfer, a money order, or personal check. Personal checks may only be used for payments of $100 or more, and may not be made for less than the amount required at purchase. Personal checks under $1,000 are subject to the same processing fees as wire transfers. All personal checks will be delayed fourteen (14) days until the money is credited, which may delay Your usage of the Software or Services. You agree that if the EFT or bank draft is returned unpaid, You will pay a service charge of $25.00 or the maximum amount allowed by law, which may be debited from Your account using an EFT or bank draft.

    You can verify the remaining funds in Your Account at any time by logging in to Manage Your Account or through the shopping cart on the Go Daddy Web site. Should You decide to terminate Your Account and seek a refund of Your Prepaid Services, Your refund will be made by check net of any discounts, including, but not limited to, reduced or waived wire transfer fees and/or the Cash Discount.

    You acknowledge that funds transferred to Your Account will be held in an account by Go Daddy , which will not accrue or pay interest for Your benefit.
